Although Blizzard just recently teased a new hero for their hit game Overwatch, they have already given the community more hints as to who the 24th character will be. In the most recent update to the Overwatch PTR, players can see that the gauntlet belonging to Doomfist has been taken from the Numbani payload.
Players can also see that the Numbani airport, the attacking team’s spawn point, has recently been the site of an epic battle. The remains of OR15 defense units can be found scattered all over the area with one OR15 defense unit having been hit with so much force it’s lodged in a wall.
In a tweet from Blizzard, we see breaking news showing the aftermath of the battle that took place at the Numbani airport. The report states that an unknown assailant destroyed OR15 defense units and that there were no civilian causalities. Another interesting piece of information is that the bottom right shows that Efi Oladele took the photo. So what exactly transpired in Numbani?
At this point it seems that someone, whether it was Doomfist or not remains to be seen, decided to take the infamous gauntlet. While the individual was attempting to make their getaway they intentionally or unintentionally ended up at the Numbani airport surrounded by OR15 units. At some point during the fight they decide to make use of the gauntlet to destroy the OR15 units and successfully escape. Not long after the battle, Efi Oladele arrived and took a picture of the carnage left behind by the unknown assailant.
Whatever is going on, the series of events leading up to the reveal of the 24th Overwatch hero will undoubtedly keep fans eagerly waiting for its release.
